Especially endurance sports, such as walking, jogging, swimming and cycling, are very effective. Regular excercise reduces the stress level and strengthens the immune system. Fitness helps to sustain certain happiness hormones (endorphines), which lowers the mental impact of psychological problems. Equally important is that you can aim higher and higher and experience the success. As well, sport activities can lead to new contacts and a deliberate distraction from the problems. So by exercising you improve your life and help your health, as you don't have to worry about your problems all the time.
